Dance... like nobody's watching

Hi there!

I hope you had a great weekend! Ready for the new week!

Let's start the week dancing...





My card was inspired by the challenge at Less is more with the theme  " face the music & dance ".

For inspiration I was thinking : sweeping, layered ballroom gowns and of course, no dancing gown is complete without a bit of bling!

I used the color combination provided by CAS colours and sketches.

B&W plus yellow... irresistible!



We'd love you to display our banner


                                                    


I saved the sentiment for you :)

Two ways:









 Thanks for looking!

WOW, WOW, WOW, vrou, dis absoluut fantasmagories!! 'n Wenner vir seker!!! Alles oor hierdie kaartjie maak my opgewonde - die lieflike helder geel, die perfekte ronde lyne, die uiters netjies geplaasde bling, die polka dots en dan natuurlik die wonderlike sentiment wat so slim gedoen is - daai musieknoot is net eenvoudig so kreatief!!! Die fyn dotjies by die sentiment is pragtig!! Dit is net eenvoudig wonderlik mooi - jy het die gevoel van 'n elegante dans so goed vasgevang met daai ronde lyne!!! Ek kan nie ophou kyk nie!!! Wel gedaan, vrou!!!

Groete en 'n lekker Maandag daar!!!

my goodness I seem to have missed a few cards-thought I had signed up for emails but I done now so shouldn't miss any more! I adore your thinking behind this, the swirl of the skirt is perfect and that sentiment rocks!

Helen J said...

Congratulations on winning at Less is More - a very worthy winner as it's a fab card!

Pat Jandacek said...

You've captured the flowing movement of dance beautifully! And I, too, love the design of the sentiment and appreciate your gift of artistry.

Ann Tuck said...

Congratulations Hannelie - your card is stunning!
BTW, Geri also suggested to me you might have a tutorial on silhouette which could help me to create an octagon within an octagon, and remove the original diagonal lines in the inside shape! Actually anything on silhouette would be wonderful as I am a complete novice on this great tool! Hugs, Ann

Karen said...

Absolutely gorgeous card!

Nora N. said...

This card is fabulous!! I LOVE the sentiment, the colors you used, the bling border. Wonderfully designed!!!

Pat Jandacek said...

Gorgeous card and wonderful phrase designs. Thank you for both. I really like how you describe some of your thought processes in designing your cards. Ah, the artist's mind at work!
